    This is what I was thinking. Three months in though would be hard to tell if it may still be cycling? I know when my water in my sump gets low (like it is now) my water starts to get cloudy from the bottom of my sump and my return spitting it up into my DT.

    no sump.

    but yes, i am running carbon. i have a fluval 406 canister. i changed out 50% of the carbon today. we'll see if that helps.
